Not only is Opening Day nearly upon us, but the weather gods have suddenly decided to smile on Baltimore as well. After a week or so of telling us the chance of rain was near 100%, we are now looking at a foggy morning and partly sunny afternoon, with high temperatures nearly 20 degrees warmer than we’ve been dealing with all week.

A good omen? I like to think so.

Let’s hit the links one last time before the 2018 season begins.

How Long will Chris Tillman’s Leash Be?

Tilly will start the season as the team’s “#5” starter (once Alex Cobb is here, anyway), a far cry from the guy who started ALDS and ALCS game ones just four years ago. Will he be given a bunch of chances to prove he can return to anything resembling his usual form, or will he be demoted to the ‘pen (or worse) after just two or three showings like we came to expect in 2017? Matt Kremnitzer of Camden Depot asks and attempts to answer.

Foul: Nationals, Orioles Games Won’t Air on Local Broadcast TV

I’m gonna be honest here – I didn’t know this was news. I thought O’s games had been exclusively on MASN (except simulcasts of ESPN games) for years now. Huh. Well, if you counted on watching the Birds on local TV every now and again, you’re apparently crap outta luck.

I’ll never for the life of me understand why the “experts” always like the Rays more than the O’s. This year, it’s even more annoying than usual. They sold off nearly all their good players! Say the O’s won’t be good, whatever, fine. But stop putting them behind friggin’ Tampa.

The Magic of Orioles Opening Day

Opening Day is awesome, and even those goofs who consider Baltimore a football town can agree with that. One of those goofs, Adam Bonaccorsi, waxes poetic about Opening Day over on our sister site, RSR.
